Anyone have experience interfacing XBee with Blimpduino? I've been scouring the internet and found a bunch of people who've done it, but give out no directions on how. Mostly I'm looking for what pins need to go where... Thanks for the help!

You are past the point where you can not post links. Use that capability to post a link to the Blimpduino.

The XBee needs to be connected to +3.3V, Gnd, and two pins for TX and RX. If you want to talk to the XBee using the hardware serial class (Serial), use pins 0 and 1.

Otherwise, use any other two pins, and NewSoftSerial.

http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9132 is an XBee explorer that can hook directly onto the FDTI pins provided by Blimpduino.
